Support worker - King's Road Community Drop-in
When he went into hospital with hypothermia, Eddie had been street homeless for 26 years after growing up in care. This was a big wake up call. He realised that if he continued to sleep rough, he could die young. Eddie started sleeping in night shelters in West London churches including Chelsea Methodist Church, and finding respite in our King’s Road Community Drop-in. With support from staff and volunteers he began to transform his life.
Feeling called to help others he began volunteering at the Drop-in. Now he’s employed as a support worker, and is a highly valued member of the Drop in team.
